A4NH's Food Systems for Healthier Diets flagship leader Inge Brouwer and Ruerd Ruben, who represents Wageningen University & Research on A4NH's Planning and Management Committee, along with their food systems research conducted as part of A4NH, were profiled in a recent article by the Dutch Research Council (NWO).
The article draws out the innovative consumer-based perspective A4NH has taken on food systems research:

Brouwer and Ruben's involvement in A4NH has been supported by NWO's Senior Expert Programme.

The authors map national food system transformations in a recently developed typology, using economic, social, dietary, and environmental outcomes to examine whether there are linear patterns as countries move from one categorization to another.
PhD candidates with A4NH's Food Systems for Healthier Diets research flagship reflect on what they learned about engaging in national food system transformation during the course of their study.
